OLD CITY

Vintage plate 2018

Around the public garden, where one will enjoy linger to contemplate the magnificent metrosideros or "velvet trees", one can observe several remarkable buildings: it is difficult not to notice the exuberant facade of the Do Espírito Santo church, an ancient temple of the Brotherhood of Mercy. The interior is in contrast very sober. The Town Hall is a fine example of 17th and 18th century civil architecture. It contains a collection of portraits of Heads of State, from Dona Maria II to the present day.

    Le centre ville est assez petit mais charmant avec les petites ruelles, boulangeries et la place de l'hôtel de ville. A proximité, les piscines municipales ont l'air super agréables face à l'océan...

    Après Ponta Delgada la deuxième ville de Sao Miguel à voir. Le centre - ville est assez compact et facile à visiter. Il est également intéressant de faire un petit détour par une plage superbe (un super site pour le surf)

    Ribeira Grande est une très jolie ville, bien située comme point d'ancrage pour partir à la découverte de l'île de Sao Miguel.
